this has played out particularly, clearly mohamed morsi playing a pivotal role here. how is egypt calling the shots in terms of the way the palestinians are reacting? >> reporter: well, on the one hand, one needs to remember when it came to trying to mediate deals between these two sides, egypt has always played something of a pretty critical and central role. what has changed now is the dynamics between egypt and israel after the arab spring, and after the fact that hosni mubarak, who was a staunch ally of the west and is no longer in power. and now the egyptians became an entity because of the fact they are led by the muslim brotherhood, became an entity significantly closer to the hamas leadership here in gaza. that really changed a lot of the dynamics and the way we've been seeing things play out on the ground. the dynamics of what is transpiring that led to the cease-fire, we'll have to wait and see if it holds. that is what has changed, most certainly, egypt, given the fact it is a very young government, has at least for now proven itself. in one sense it has passed that critical te
in egypt and turkey and qatar are trying to broker a cease-fire. more to eamon with this. we were talking about yesterday and the cease-fire was in talks, but any progress? >> well, there are early indications that perhaps some tentative agreements, and you to couch it so much, because anything can change in this part of the world so rapidly. we understand that as you say egypt has been moo mediating so heavily and there have been ground grounds made and there are also some differences that have not been overcome, and one of the issues that we understand that the israelis want are egyptian guarantees to secure the border off of gaza and off of the coast of gaza to prevent weapons from going in to be used in later conflicts, but at the same time palestinian factions want international confirmation that sanctions will be lifted. so it is not what the two sides are disagreeing about, but it is whether or not the external parties can guarantee the details of the truce. so we are trying to see if they can get on the same page and we have seen over the past the few years when there is a truce o
is prepared to take whatever action is necessary to defend our people. >> while egypt's prime minister visited gaza today in a show of solidarity with hamas, israel agreed to pause attacks, but we keep hearing more coming from there, richard, your thoughts. >> look, it's possible this escalates, but it's hard for me to see how anybody benefits. israel got out of gaza -- israel's a first-world country, a first-world economy. it doesn't want rockets raining down in the middle of tel aviv. it would be like rockets raining down on rockefeller center. israel's way beyond this and wants to move beyond this. also, this brings into play the israeli/egyptian treaty and jordan. everything now -- >> so the question is, why did hamas choose to start firing rockets into israel the way they did? >> i think for hamas -- >> to start this? >> i think for hamas, it's station identification. this is what hamas does. this is how it differentiates itself but hasn't been able to deliver the goods at home to the palestinian people in gaza. this galvanizes its space. it shows the hamas, quote, unquote, is doing somet

leaders of egypt. he is hoping that the government of qatar, turkey, that they can convince them to stop with the rockets and hopefully they can have an effort to achieve a long range solution. that's going to be very, very difficult as all of us know. but the prime minister of israel, he says 30,000 ground forces have been activated, they are in training exercises, not far from gaza and they will go in as brutal and ugly as that might, they don't want to do that because it'll cause an enormous amount of pain. israelis had a poor experience under gaza four years ago. and again with hezbollah forces. they don't want to do that but the prime minister feels he has no choice. the next 42 hours will be critical and i say there is a 50/50 chance after diplomatic cease-fire. >> wolf blitzer, thank you. >>> be sure to join wolf blitzer monday, 4:00 p.m. eastern, for "the situation room," a special edition live from jerusalem. >>> a peace effort under way it stop the violence. egypt working to reinstate a cease-fire. deputy general will arrive in cairo tomorrow. both israelis and palestinians say
